My mom got this recipe from her mom. I remember my grandmother making this at our house and she pureed everything together to make it like ketcup. It was good that way, but I prefer chunky salsa.
Grandma Lily's Salsa
12 ripe tomatoes(I always use more-20-25)
3 onions chopped
3 sweet peppers chopped
1 c green and red hot peppers chopped(to your desired 'heat' level)
2 c sugar
2 c vinegar
3 T salt
Mix all together and cook for 2 hours. Put in jars and seal. I just have hot jars and hot lids. You can water bath, but I don’t always do this.
***I always use a lot more tomatoes, but never add more vinegar and sugar. The last few years I have added corn and black beans.
